'Scouts Vs. Zombies' Builds on it's Squad of Actors

After the news of David Koechner joining the low-radar flick, news started to break on it and sites such as Empire were checking for updates on a horror named "Scouts Vs. Zombies", which means that this probably won't be the straight-to-dvd horror that everyone expects it to be.

A 'Friday The 13th' TV Series Announced! Is This Good or Bad?

Deadline just reported that Friday The 13th will be coming to the small screen despite the reboot Platinum Dunes are doing. Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films and Crystal Lake Entertainment have set a deal to produce a new hour-long dramatic series based upon the characters and settings of Friday The 13th.

Sean S. Cunningham, who helmed the 1980 original, will be executive producer along with EFO Films principals Randall Emmett & George Furla, Mark Canton of Atmosphere Entertainment MM, Steve B. Harris of Diversion3 Entertainment, and Ted Fox of Fox Entertainment.

Bill Basso (Terminator) and Jordu Schell (Avatar) have been set to script “a storyline that re-imagines Jason in multiple time periods.

So, the small screen strikes again and it looks as if the slasher genre's popularity is starting to move to the smaller screen along with the Scream Series. I am excited for this but the question is; are you?

First Official Trailer for '[REC] 4: Apocalypse' Ship Wrecks

The trailer for upcoming fourth-parter to the [REC] franchise has been released and this time the infected are taken out to see where blood, guts and bodies will fall. For a second time now the franchise has dropped the found-footage approach (which was how the franchise started) and will follow the action of Clara, a survivor of the first two who is out at sea with only herself to save.

10 Horror Sequels/Prequels/Remakes that are Coming that Nobody Wants

Nurse 2
It has recently been announced (and I mean recently) from the main actress Paz De La Huerta on twitter that a Nurse 3D is going to happen; or in her words "RT if u want a Sequel to Nurse 3D", in which she followed with a later tweet that read "Nurse 2 is on its way". Seriously? Guys, really? Firstly, I have to express how much this baffles me, that a straight-to-video, albeit a small theatrical released horror that made little to no impact in the genre, is already throwing a sequel on the table. Now, I am no genius, but I can bet my bottom dollar that the money paid to watch this film was from a male dominated audience, not including teens with a lust for any film that has nipples on the go. Yeah Nurse 3D was provocative and amusing, but it was also derivative and tasteless. Why would anyone give the time (and money) to watch something like that two-times over? Obviously Dimension brought in some money from this one, and I have no doubt it was due to the hugely attractive cast (although La Huerta looked like a Russian gypsy), and if they plan to make some more off this pointless sequel, then the girls are going to have to look like they were pulled right from a porno flick.

Remake in the Works for 'Cabin Fever' ?

This may just be the most pointless remake news I have heard in a long time; Eli Roth's splatter cult classic Cabin Fever is set to be remade by Indomina who had originally planned back-to-back sequels to follow the recent gory mess that was Patient Zero. Evolution Entertainment is set to produce the remake alongside Cassian Elwes and Evan Astrowsky, but I think its safe to say that we don't have a clue what they were thinking, and that this may just be as unnecessary as the recent Carrie remake.

Bloody Disgusting heard first from the Cannes Film Festival, and it's not clear just yet if Eli Roth himself will have any involvement, but I doubt it, and to be honest he'll probably give it the green light himself; I mean at the end of the day its the highest form of flattery right? Or it could be there way of saying "we hated your movie, so we're going to make it better."... Who knows what exactly they're thinking, but this is one remake that we don't need and one that nobody asked for.

First Poster for Upcoming Sequel 'Leprechaun: Origins' Lands on Gold

Fool's Gold

Are you excited for the upcoming sequel to the infamous franchise starring WWE's own Hornswoggle? Well then that makes you the only one. I am not a fan of the franchise, in fact, I think it is the soul reason why the horror genre ended up bombing loosing most of its fans. But, I can't sit here on preconceptions, and instead I will watch it and give it a chance like every other piece of trash I've watched in the past. Oh well, if it's a turd I'd like to think they will polish it eh?

V/H/S Director is Set to Direct Friday The 13th Reboot - Still Expect Shaky Cam

David Buckner lands the Job

David Buckner is the guy who is (un)lucky enough to tackle the upcoming Friday The 13th reboot that is set for a release on Friday 13th March 2015 which personally I don't think will come that soon. This next chapter is set to "reboot" the franchise, so if you have an appetite for Jason and his savage slaughtering then you may prepare yourself as this sounds like the beginning of a new franchise.

Things Horror Fans Shouldn't Say

Did you ever sit there and hear someone who "loves horror" say "yeah, I really think Reeker 2 is a great sequel"? Yeah well if you did then that means that they don't have a clue and that there taste in horror is worse than the smell of a rotted corpse on The Walking Dead. Sure, everyone is aloud to have that guilty pleasure, I mean I have my baggage, but when you hear someone say how much better a terrible sequel is than the original, you know something isn't right there; so here is my list of horror movies that if people say are good/great, then you know their opinion in the future is completely invalid.

Plot Details Released about 'Scream: The Series' !!

I am a huge fan of the Scream franchise, and I don't think there is a better horror franchise around then that (disagree with me all you want, there are great). So, the news of the MTV Series has me both worried and excited; worried, because they could completely kill the franchise; excited, because it's Scream and its return will be welcomed with open arms from me. Perhaps Scream 5 would have been a better option but you know, beggars can't be choosers.

Plot details have been released about the upcoming series, and the Pilot, airing in the summer will be directed by the one and only Wes Craven! Give me time to geek out because I think he is the only one capable of this.
